Movie Quote Monday: Cary Grant Edition

I never watched many classic movies until I started dating Matt.  I held the belief that many people have that a black and white movie could not be that interesting.  Fortunately, Matt did not grow up with the same prejudice and he introduced me to many good movies and we discovered many more good movies together.  One of my favorite actors is Cary Grant for many obvious reasons.  We enjoy his acting range and the way that he can does well in both comedic and serious roles.  We need more actors today like Cary Grant (and the many others who starred with him).

This week's movie is one of two that he made with Myrna Loy (one of my favorite actresses).  The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer also started a grown up Shirley Temple and is full of many great lines.  The movie is a light-hearted comedy that shows the fickleness of young love.

Margaret: You know I'd die for you, only sometimes it's so hard living with you.

Matt Beemish: I'm the court psychiatrist.
Richard Nugent: Come back in an hour. I'll be crazy by then. 
Richard Nugent: Hey, you remind me of a man.
Susan Turner: What man?
Richard Nugent: Man with the power.
Susan Turner: What power?
Richard Nugent: Power of hoodoo.
Susan Turner: Hoodoo?
Richard Nugent: You do.
Susan Turner: Do what?
Richard Nugent: Remind me of a man...
Matt Beemish: I couldn't help overhearing. I had my ear to the door.
Waiter at Tick Tock Club: [to Nugent after he has been yelled at, insulted, slapped, had champagne tossed in his face and been stuck with the check] Can I get you anything else, sir?
Richard Nugent: For instance?
Richard (Dick) Nugent: How'd you get in here?
Matt Beemish: Well, the door was closed, so I opened it and came right in.
